”If I recall, it ’s not time yet for our daily airing. ”

”Captain Murtadon, please stay in place. ”

The security officer first pressed a button on the stealth detector gadget.
The device had been put on standby for a while now, so when it became active it instantly emitted an invisible but energetic wave that even the captain could feel, even if he didn ’t know what it had done.Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click for visiting.

Nothing invisible scrambled into the open.

That wasn ’t how the stealth detector worked.
It detected and exposed objects hiding through certain technological means, but it did not deactivate the stealth systems at all.

However, it did appear the stealth detector picked up something untowards.

Through the visor of the security officer and the security feed of the monitoring system, they hadn ’t picked up any invisible weapons or bots or anything like that.
What they did find was that certain shielding mechanisms inside the mech captain ’s body became ineffective.
Certain parts of his brains, his torso and his arms lit up as the stealth detector exposed anomalous systems integrated in Murtadon ’s body!

”Implants! Captain Murtadon carries hidden implants within his body! ”

Evidently, the Chopran mech captain knew that he ’d just been exposed, because his face adopted a very ugly expression.
”You aren ’t supposed to see that. ”

Then, before the security officer replied, Captain Murtadon immediately pointed his arm at the Vandal.
A section of the forearm abruptly parted like a hinge, revealing a bone-like gun barrel integrated in the flesh!


The bone barrel fired a powerful shot that caused the security officer to jerk backwards a bit as the round exploded!

Yet while the explosive round released a powerful impact, it only managed to dent the armor a little bit!

The well-trained security officer snapped up his electrorod pistol even before he completely recovered and zapped Captain Murtadon with a powerful shock!

”AAhh!! ”

The current running through the Chorpan ’s modified body paralyzed the man for a little bit, but then he slowly jerked his arm-gun up again.

The cell didn ’t wait for him to finish his move.
Some of the panels in the bulkheads retracted, revealing net launchers that launched a composite net on top of his body.
The ends of the nets connected to the launchers, causing them to grow taut when pulled.

This hindered the good captain long enough for him to be restrained by a team of heavy-armored security officers that served as backup.

Just as everyone thought the captain was secured, he uttered out a strange cry.

”You ’ll… never..
marked for death! ”

The captain ’s body abruptly shook and ceased to move.
Smoke began to pour out of the body ’s ear sockets.

”He ’s fried himself! Get the doctors here! We need to preserve his body and his implants! ”

They botched the entire encounter.
They never expected the man to be crazy enough to implant his body with organic machinery! That was something the citizens of the Comen Federation or other deviant states did, but never someone from the Bright Republic!

As the Vandal security officers and incoming doctors tried to preserve as much as they could out of Murtadon ’s ruined body, Major Verle, Ves, and a couple of others began to analyze what they saw.

Ves inspected the brief scans of Captain Murtadon ’s corpse.
”I don ’t know exactly what this alloy shell consists of, but it ’s remarkably effective at shielding the organic implants from detection.
I ’m rather interested in this material.
Can I have a sample, sir? ”

”No. ” Major Verle denied his request.
”His corpse isn ’t a toy for you to salvage for parts.
We need to determine who Murtadon is, why he is jacked up with implants, and what possible intentions he harbored. ”

”He may not be the only one who bears the implants, major. ” A security captain warned.
”We ’ve isolated the other cells from what has happened at Murtadon ’s cell, but we don ’t know what effects his death may cause.
For all we know, one of his implants has transmitted a secret signal that can go through our isolating bulkheads. ”

”Search them thoroughly, and be prepared to halt any attempts at halting their suicides. ” Verle commanded.
”From Murtadon ’s behavior, he may have activated a suicide trigger implanted in his body, but it could have also activated by itself in response to detection. ”

”We can put them to sleep before inspecting them discreetly.
Any automated suicide triggers can be fooled as long as we avoid making any moves that ticks the boxes. ”

The cells came equipped with many means of subduing their occupants.
The security officers decided upon graduately introducing an airborne intoxicating agent in the air circulation system.
This invisible, odor-less and slow-working gas gradually increased the sleepiness of the affected Choprans.

One by one, they turned off their projections depicting some kind of show or drama and started to take a nap in their beds.

Thus, without any fuss, every Chopran fell to sleep.

Security officers remained outside the cell but activated the gadgets loaned by Ves at a slightly more powerful setting.
The frontal cell cover that used to be transparent but now turned opaque only partially blocked their effects, allowing them to affect the occupants without being too close or in visual range.

The inspections turned up nothing.
After inspections from afar hadn ’t revealed anything amiss, doctors and security officers entered the cells and thoroughly investigated their bodies.
None of the Choprans carried a hint of machinery or strange organs in their bodies.

”Looks like Captain Murtadon is the only person here who ’s fishy. ” Ves noted as he finally received his toolbelt precious gadgets from the security captain.

He was half afraid the Vandals would appropriate them for their own uses, but it seemed they didn ’t particularly care, or maybe Major Verle threw him a bone.

A mech regiment had to adhere to regulations on the kind of weapons and equipment they were allowed to use.
For example, they weren ’t allowed to utilize any stealth devices in the first place, nor would it be a good idea for them to make use of gamma laser rifles or nuclear weapons!

Thus, Ves got the sense that Major Verle tolerated his side projects by pretending that they had nothing to do with the Vandals.
In any case, if the Vandals had need of them, Ves could only let them borrow his inventions like now, and return them to him when finished.

”Let ’s see what the autopsy has discovered. ”
